Dental bone grafting is often used for dental patients who require dental implants. It is important to keep in mind that there are cases where bone grafting is required while other cases do not necessitate this type of procedure. Dental implant surgery is unique and different for each patient. The good news is that dental bone grafting is a routine procedure that is no different than any other type of dental treatment offered today. It is painless and for the most part a predictable type of procedure that can improve the overall success of dental implant surgery, especially when a patient does not have an adequate amount of healthy natural bone in their jaw.
This is a time when bone grafting becomes important for the patient. For dental implants to be fully effective there must be adequate bone to support titanium posts that make up the core of implants. There may be a deficiency in natural jawbone mass for a number of reasons. This can include everything from ongoing gum disease to developmental defects or where there is empty space simply because the teeth were removed or fell out. In addition, face trauma or facial injury can also necessitate the need for dental implant surgery and any associated required bone grafting.
